TEHRAN, Jul. 01 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi condemned Friday’s terrorist attack in the southern Philippines.

In a Monday statement, Mousavi condemned the attack which was orchestrated by ISIL terrorists, also expressing sympathy with the Philippian government and nation and families of victims.

Five people were killed and 12 wounded in the attack on an army camp in Indanan town in Sulu province, 1,000km south of the capital, on Friday. ISIL terrorists claimed the bombing was the work of two suicide attackers.
